Garden journal entry
|February 13, 2014. Snow day! We've had more than our usual share of flakes since earlier this winter, but this week really clinched it, with a good foot of now falling on top of almost a foot that hadn't yet melted from the last storm. It was hard to find a surface not covered in white fluff when I strolled outside during a lull in the storm. But the pump in the big pond keeps on going, and the spots where the water has some velocity are those where the snow doesn't persist. The pond proper is covered with ice and snow, but the bog filter from which the water overflows is partially clear. See Mr Crane just peeking out over the snowline?|

|Susan Wheeler||Feb 25, 2014||I would have to say that the rest of North America has had a really awful winter, so far. And,yes, we too, here on the West Coast of British Columbia, have just received a great dump of very wet and heavy snow. I decided to write a blog post about how to help our plants through this miserable time.
Keep up your good posts. Although I have just discovered your site, I am loving it!|
|Jennifer W Richmond Hill On Canada||Mar 02, 2014||So pleased to find you writing your journal again after such a long interval glad you are still up and gardening! We have been up to our necks in snow ever since a severe ice storm on Dec. 22 2013 in mid and eastern Ontario Canada and extreme cold prevails. Greetings from Richmond Hill with hope for an early spring altho the weather people say we shan't see spring until mid April. We have lots of tree damage from the ice andit will be interesting to see what the damage is when the snow melts. This tiem last year I had snowdrops and hellebores! |
I know, spring seems far away still. It will probably be a late one - but we should be looking at some early flowers by a month from now :-)
